Liverpool FC youngster wants more after ‘special’ debut
Liverpool FC‘s young midfielder Conor Coady can’t wait to make more appearances for the Reds following his first team debut against Anzhi Makhachkala last night.
The 19-year-old was one of several youngsters who travelled to Moscow for the Europa League Group A clash.
And the Liverpool-born youngster is eager to build on what he has described as a “really special moment” and become a Liverpool regular in the future.
He told Liverpool’s official website: “It was fantastic and I enjoyed every minute of it.
“It was a big night for me and my family. It is every boy’s dream to play for Liverpool. You have to be patient, bide your time and work hard at training. I have been waiting a long time for this day and it was really special to get out there and play.
“I put my all into it and I was made up to make my debut. I was happy with the way I played and I thought all the boys did well. Hopefully it is the first appearance of many for me.”
Coady went on to praise his manager Brendan Rodgers and admitted that, despite making his dream debut, he was disappointed to be on the losing side.
“I thought we were a bit unlucky not to get anything from the game. We sat there, competed with them and I thought we were fantastic tactically,” he continued.
“We are just disappointed not to get a result, but we will bounce back from this and become better.
“It is fantastic to play under Brendan. He has given a lot of us young lads games this season and it is great he has shown faith.”
